I will admit it… one of the things I love about this time of year is the “Advent Calendar”. We used to get one when I was a kid; it was enormous fun to open the little windows each day of December to see the image hidden within. Nowadays they have “prizes” inside. We actually bought this one (pictured) a couple of years ago, intending to give it to friends last year, but we were not disciplined enough to complete the task. So this year we bought two of a couple of different types of chocolate (our intended friends have twins) and put them in the little drawer for each day. It was at least as much fun for us to put together as I hope the boys get as they open the gift each morning.
